RIP WWN (and Bat Boy!)
An influential forerunner of satirical publications like The Onion, and TV shows such as The Daily Show, will cease printing this month. The final issue of the Weekly World News hits newsstands August 27th. It will continue online at www.weeklyworldnews.com. Created in 1979, the often hilarious rag hits its peak in the 80's and is a victim of declining print readership. Or maybe space aliens.
